Back!

We cut our trip a little short...Big Sis had a quasi-emergency at work, so we left last night and got in real late. I chose to sleep in and come to work at 10:00;-) I'm not quite as motivated as the rest of them...lol. My additional thoughts on SHR will come tomorrow.

The trip was really fun. I got some quality time with my two west coast girls, made some new friends, won a little gambling (a very little, I don't gamble much!) and basically just go to relax and have fun with some of my favorite people. Nothing too out of control, although anytime you take that many girls away from their husbands and other attachments, funny stuff happens. One of Big Sis' friends has two little kids (Irish twins...lol...I learned that phrase;-)) and basically hadn't had a vacation (or a drink!) in like two years...she was like a little kid in a candy store!

All in all, it was wholesome, clean fun:-D Hee hee...at least the parts I am willing to cop to, were...

My next agenda item is that I am hosting a dinner party this Saturday. I am kind of nervous, to be honest, as this is really like an adult thing to do. There are going to be 32 people, which I feel like is a really big party. We do have enough room...although it requires clearing out the living room so two big tables can fit in.

I'm excited, too. The school parents have all been kind of looking out for me and for Munchkin, so I want to show them that I really appreciate it and that we are doing ok. The Boy is going to be out of town, so he will miss it, but Smoking Hot Roommate is gonna be my date, and she will suit the situation just fine...lol.

Anyway...I think everything is sort of all set for it (meaning that I have a caterer who says everything is all set...lol). Anyone have any words of warning? Things I shouldn't do, or should do? Anything?

Will everyone know each other? My only suggestion would be to try and spend a little time with each guest, talking, catching up, etc. And keep it relaxed, it will be more fun that way.
You are so lucky to be able to have a caterer! Wow.
Glad you had a blast on your trip!

Hi :)

I can relate to being in a candy store, LOL.

As for the dinner party, that's a huge amount of people...it's good that you're getting it catered!

Just relax. Everyone will find a way to entertain themselves through conversation and the food. Schmooze a few minutes with each person, but don't feel bad if you can't spend a ton of time with each person.

You can't do much wrong, so don't worry about that!

I guess I am not terribly worried...everyone knows everyone. Most of them have been friendly for five years now, so everybody is pretty comfortable around each other. I'm just a little nervous because I have never done anything like this. Of course, even if I do something wrong, its not like anyone would get mad at me...

Don't worry about anything. If something happens you just deal with it. Relax and havae fun. It will be over before you know it.

I'm sure your dinner party will be amazing! You seem like you would be an excellent host. I was reading your post about SHR, and she seems amazing! I wish I had the ability to not sleep and still be incredibly productive. You're surrounded by amazing friends! =D

Don't get so drunk you make out with SHR in front of the parents. :)

Aaron - Not bad advice...I will be sure to keep the alchohol intake under control;-)

Ally said...

No big advice except get ready early and don't end up being rushed. You want to enjoy it too.

You should know what I want to know...what's on the menu? The best thing about having a catered party is that you get to keep all of the "leftovers."

Make sure there is always an adult beverage in everybody's hands. :)

Sounds like fun!
